Galaxy Redshift Survey provides the most detailed census of the Universe
at z ~ 1 to date. The survey targeted ~50,000 distant galaxies
in the redshift range 0 < z < 1.4, utilizing the
spectrograph on the
II telescope. Data Release 3 (DR3) constitutes the third public data
release for the survey and includes redshift and imaging catalogs in
addition to 1-d and 2-d spectra spanning all
four survey fields.
DR3 is also the first release of data in the Extended Groth Strip
(EGS), the subject of the AEGIS multiwavelength survey. Unlike other
DEEP2 fields, objects at z < 0.7 were not excluded from
selection in the EGS.
In addition to encompassing the roughly 300 slitmasks released as part of
DR1 and DR2, Data Release 3 spans an additional ~100 DEIMOS slitmasks,
which were observed during the 2003-2005 DEEP2 observing seasons (data
collected May 2003 - July 2005).
